You can diversify your investment portfolio and income stream by adding tangible assets such as real estate to the mix. Real estate has a generally low correlation to the stock market. According to the latest report by financial-planning.com (2017), real estate correlates to stocks by about .57. Which means, that the prices between real estate and stocks move in the same direction only about half the time. Owning real estate can include strategies such as holding residential or commercial property to having an interest share in larger operations facilitated by REITs. The benefit of diversifying via real estate can include leveraging a bank’s money to buy property, tax deductions, and appreciation, but the main reason to own real estate is the steady cash flow.
